What is the Fund for Catholic High School?
The Fund for Catholic High School is the school’s program for unrestricted annual giving. It is the vehicle by which alumni, parents, parents of alumni, grandparents and friends provide financial support to help keep Catholic High School strong. Contributions to The Fund for Catholic High School represent real savings for our young men and their families.
Each year, gifts to The Fund help offset The GAP – the difference between tuition and the actual cost of educating each student. For the coming school year, The GAP is $2,210 per student. Gifts to The Fund also help support other programs such as need-based tuition assistance, academics, faculty recruitment and retention, campus ministry, athletics, fine arts and extracurricular activities.
By making your gift today, you are helping Catholic High School stay faithful to its mission and continue building tomorrow’s leaders.
